One of the things we love most about Nicer Tuesdays, is the opportunity it provides to bring the creative community together. We relish getting the chance to actually meet some of our readers when we head down to Oval Space for the evening, as well as the speakers who we’ve often only interacted with via the internet until that evening.

Often, the topic of the talks themselves are about projects which bring people together in some way, in fact, it’s one of things creativity is best at; developing a community where there wouldn’t be one otherwise. We’ve heard talks about people rallying behind a single passion, or joining together to shine a light on an overlooked issue, each as inspiring as the last.

Right now, a reminder that community exists outside the four walls of your bedroom or beyond your kitchen table is needed. So we’ve pulled together five our favourite Nicer Tuesdays which demonstrate creativity’s ability to bring people together. It sounds corny, we know, but it really is true.

Season zine is an independent publication exploring the cross-section of football and fashion. Inspired by Cristian Ronaldo’s tears at the Euros in 2004, founder and editor-in-chief Felicia Pennant saw the power of football but wanted to present something different to the “male, pale and sometimes very stale football commentary”. Full of honest and candid reports from interviews and contributors, Season adds a refreshing tone of voice to the current conversation on football.
